5 It's only rock 'n' roll...but I like it!zooform | 26/02/2011 | See all zooform's reviews (21)Oasis were great, but the dream is over. Now, let's look to the future because Liam and co. have provided a pure rock 'n' roll record. Sure, it's full of influences but that's what we expect, whether it's '50s rock 'n' roll, Lennon, The Who, The Byrds, Beatles etc. Some great tunes on offer, but of course, because it doesn't fit in with today's disposable garbage there's always those eager to slag it off, but rock 'n' roll music isn't about trends it's about the music. 'Different Gear...' is a quality record, hints of Oasis (obviously) but this far more upbeat than anything Oasis have put to record for many years suggesting it was Noel who turned the band into a laboured leviathan. Liam has his swagger back, his voice is a rough diamond, the riffs are sharp, the melodies stick in the mind - often nods to retro psych and sweet harmonies, occasionally bolstered by a beefy vibe, or just swaying in the breeze. This album is a pleasant surprise and the future looks bright. Many thought Liam couldn't pen a decent tune, but apart from 'Little James' he's always had an eye for a good melody, and with the whole band showing their support I can't wait for the next batch of records.
